Order Status by default

Can someone help me find where I may be able to make a particular order status, like "pending’ be the default status for all orders until payment is clear, etc. It looks like CS-Cart has the order status as ‘completed’ out the box.

Thanks Forum.

My default configuration is set to Open until payment is cleared. I would imagine that if you wanted, you could go to order statuses in your admin and change Open to Pending.
